La Pomme Prisonniere (Prisoner Apple)

TSURUTA Kenji

[Japan]

This is a series of short stories exploring the theme of cat, women, and ruins. Set in such beautiful backdrops as the Venetian cityscape, under the bridges, ruins on water’s edge, and abandoned tunnels, a naked woman lives a carefree life in idleness drinking alcohol. Liberated everyday scenes of a woman frolicking with a cat are depicted with a poetically unique worldview and delicate drawing technique.
